Our Safety Vision
At Colloide we want “A SAFE Today, A SAFE Tomorrow, A SAFE Year and A SAFE Career.”
Whatever the role, and however experienced any individual is in working for us, there’s one safety vision we are all required to share. Everybody has a responsibility to behave safely and challenge unsafe behaviours and conditions when we see them. This underpins our belief that outstanding safety performance and outstanding business performance go hand in hand.
Safety in Practice
Our Policy addresses how we as a company aim to achieve Our Safety Vision. Establishing safety behaviours sets expectation for our employees and contractors, drawing on our overall values of exceeding standards, being accountable, planning for the future, and providing a safe and healthy working environment for everyone.
We expect every individual to comply with our health and safety policies and procedures, acknowledging their personal responsibility, reporting what they see as unsafe acts and to ensure they are ‘fit for work’.
Safety in Leadership
Leaders and managers drive open and honest conversations around safety, applying our company model for the investigation of any incidents and the learnings made possible by them.
Anyone involved can be certain of support and fair treatment from their managers, who ensure the appropriate response and actions are taken for all parties.
We believe that business and safety performance are one and the same. Safety is actively used as a tool with which to guide and instruct performance. We’re always reviewing, analysing and learning from our performance, collaborating with our stakeholders and recognising the value they can add in continuously improving our safety practice.
Skills training is delivered at all levels within our workforce to ensure expertise is up to date with the latest, safest methodologies, and contributes to strong safety performance.
Grace King, SHEQ Co-Ordinator – “The first step in building a solid foundation for a safety culture is creating a shared vision. It is my belief that our safety vision does several things: It articulates the safety goals and values that resonate throughout Colloide, unites workers and managers, and provides a single purpose that engages all our employees. It also supplies support for our safety management system. In short, it will drive safety at Colloide. Through spending the time to creating our safety vision and embedding it in Colloide’s culture we believe we are well on the road to generating a company-wide safety culture.”
